A towbar with a unique design for S40 and V50, that is easy to install when needed. When it is not needed, it is easily removed and all that can be seen is the fully covering protective cover. The cars are fully prepared with weld nuts in the body and a clear marking for cut-out in the bumper casing.

For cars with diesel engine and manual transmission: If the car is driven with a major load in a hot climate, the engine cooling fan should be replaced with one of a greater capacity than the standard model. This avoids temporary shut-off of the air conditioning and temporary lowering of engine torque.
